With that said, and as a male child, he ask very little....but tells me full plan, in his terms.
She is in mid 70's, and I have no idea of stage.?
Next, they will in next few weeks begin 6-8 weeks of chemo/radiation. Upon success of shrinking will do surgery to remove mass. She will then begin another round of chemo.
She has always been a blessing, but I would like to get a bit of information on what I'm looking at for prognosis.
Do her treatment plans indicate any staging? Does age affect success rate?
I feel unfortunate she is using local, small hospital, which specializes in nothing. Not to say it's a bad hospital, but it's not a specialty hospital for anything.
Blessing to all. Thank you for providing me as much wisdom and knowledge as you can.
